The last few weeks I’ve been listening to a lot of new music, checking out a lot of new art, and just experiencing new things to further inspire my own creativity. I absolutely HAVE to share something I came across that was just ultra amazing….
I had an opportunity to listen to the new album Electric Lady, by Janelle Monae and I’ve got to say it is more than impressive. As a sax player I immediately began harmonizing with the horn lines super funky delicious lines. Her voice weaves in and out of your psyche like some kind of wicked beautiful banshee siren. I love it. The beat+bass lines will beat your cerebral cortex into submission nod by nod and the guitars… oh the guitars. It’s almost sexual. i’ll probably have to listen to this entire album naked for a week. I don’t have anything bad to say about this album except that I’m angry I didn’t write it first. Here’s a teaser video to check her out. Follow the light….
